I blame Josh for making me buy this.
I think the conversation went something like this:
ET: well... off to the eye doctor then b&n then range... must... not... go... to ... gun show...
J: Dude, just give in. Go to the gun show.
J: wow...that was easy
ET: yeah... did you really think it would be hard?
I take that as an admission of guilt.
I pulled out 100 bucks and my list of stuff I need from the gun show. I made a pretty good dent in the list.
2 canteens and canteen belt holders
1 high quality gun belt
1 shotgun 5 shell holding butt sleeve
1 shotgun shell bandoleer
1 belt double pistol mag pouch
1 belt single pistol mag pouch
1 metal rail to attach to AR plastic handguard
30 rifled shotgun slugs ($20!)
1 mid-grade rail-mountable bipod
I spent every last penny of the $100 (was actually 60 cents short on the belt, but the guy gave it to me :) and had a good sack of loot to show for it.
I didn't have to leave though first building, I could have gone around it...
But I didn't.
8 days to go.
